Cuffs are worked in Tunisian crochet (also known as Afghan stitch).


All rows of Tunisian Crochet are worked with the right side facing.

Do not turn the work.


Each row of Tunisian Crochet is worked in two passes; a Forward Pass and a Return Pass.

Loops are picked up and placed on the hook during the Forward Pass.

The loops are worked off the hook during the Return Pass.

Do not draw up a loop in the first vertical bar during a Forward Pass.

The loop remaining on the hook after a Return Pass serves as the first loop of the next row.


A regular crochet hook is used, instead of a Tunisian hook, because only a small number of loops are held on the hook at one time.


Cuffs are worked with 2 strands of yarn held together to create a dense fabric.


Wind copper, sparkling taupe and teal yarns into 2 separate balls each before beginning.


Random cross sts are embroidered on completed Cuffs.

Foundation Row (forward pass): Insert hook in 2nd ch from hook, yo and draw up a loop (2 loops on hook), *keeping all loops on hook, insert hook in next ch, yo and draw up a loop; rep from * across - 4 loops on hook.

Foundation Row (return pass): Yo and draw through first loop, *yo and draw through 2 loops; rep from * until 1 loop remains (this loop becomes the first stitch of the next row).

Row 1 (return pass): Yo and draw through first loop, *yo and draw through 2 loops; rep from * until 1 loop remains (this loop becomes the first st of the next row).Rep both passes of Row 1 until piece measures about 7 1/2 in.

FINISHING Embroidery Notes: 1.

Embroidery was designed to allow for creativity - place your sts as desired.


Do not embroider on the Foundation Row or last row.

With colors as desired and using a single strand, embroider Cuffs with cross sts.

With sewing needle and thread, sew buttons to Cuff - for Narrow Cuff sew one button at center of Foundation Row, for Medium sew 2 buttons evenly spaced across Foundation Row and for Wide sew 3 buttons evenly spaced across Foundation Row.

Use sps between sts on last row for buttonholes.

Weave in ends.
